Involtini di mortadella e ricotta

23 Nov

Today, a quick recipe for a starter or an appetizer. An involtino is a kind of roll in Italian. I love this recipe because I simply love ricotta and it is always very surprising for people who don’t know this kind of recipe and the ingredients.


100gr of ricotta
10 olives
A teaspoon of olive oil
Chopped basil
5 slices (very very thin, for that, ask the number of grams instead of the number of slices (I asked 100gr))

Firstly, you need to have some fresh ricotta, and mix it with a bit of salt, basil and olive oil. This time I added some chopped olives too.

Then, take a tablespoon of this mix and spread it on one side of the mortadella slice.

Finally, you just have to roll the slice around itself.

So it is very quick, and quite surprising when you put it in your mouth.
